“I see the world from three perspectives”. Sophie Woolley’s one person show about going deaf and becoming a cochlear implanted cyborg. What happens to a person’s identity when twenty years of progressive deafness is suddenly reversed?

My name is Sophie Woolley and I’m creating a show about my experience of going deaf and going hearing again via cochlear implantation.

I’m developing the piece with support from Sheffield Theatres, Ovalhouse Theatre, Poplar Union and Pulse Festival. There will be three workshops in the spring and summer of 2018.
